Fundraiser of the week - Lauren's hook a duck stall

September 20, 2019

Our fundraiser of the week is Lauren. Alongside her family, Lauren raised an amazing £120 for Action for M.E. on her hook a duck stall.

We asked Lauren to tell us a little bit more about herself. Here is what she said:

“My name is Lauren at age 9yrs I became unwell with a severe case of glandular fever unfortunately this lead on to me developing M.E.

I am now 11 years old and have just started high school I am learning to recognise my symptoms to prevent relapses but sometimes it’s difficult as I miss out on things I used to enjoy.

I wanted to raise awareness of M.E as sometimes I feel it’s a hidden illness and people don’t always realise how hard things can be for me like just doing a P.E lesson or lots of homework can leave me feeling exhausted. I’m hoping one day research will find more answers to this annoying illness!

Love
Lauren Cole xxx”

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Lauren for supporting our charity and raising awareness towards M.E./CFS. Below you can see pictures of Lauren and her younger sister hosting their stall.
